Description

This learning module focuses on writing for journal publication. The purpose of writing is explored, paying particular attention to the message to be conveyed and the readership to which that message is addressed.The process of drafting and revising an article for publication is outlined, after which attention is turned to the peer-review process, what peer reviewers are looking for in an article, and what might then be required of the author in redrafting the article to meet the expectations of the journal. Prospective authors are encouraged to research the journal to which they plan to submit their work, and to then target their writing to the readership of that publication.

Objectives

The aim of this module is to assist prospective nurse authors in preparing an article for publication in a professional journal, to write with clear purpose and to plan the article carefully using journal guidelines. The module encourages the nurse author to liaise closely with critical readers both before and after submission to the chosen journal. It is important to note that writing for publication is a collaborative process and no journal article is ever the sole product of the author. Each article is crafted, to some degree, by constructive criticism shared informally before submission, for example by colleagues and supervisors (critical readers), and formally after submission by peer reviewers and journal editors.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Review your motives for writing for publication.
Identify why it is important to write for publication.
Summarise what is involved in planning and preparing an article for publication in a professional journal.
Describe how to structure a draft article.
Understand the importance of consulting critical readers before you submit your article for publication.
Describe the purpose and benefits of the peer-review process.
